Popular literary character Doctor Ted took centre stage at Kiddi Caru’s Basingstoke day nursery recently, when the children spent a day celebrating his knack for unusual diagnoses.
Famed for diagnosing his mother’s freckles as measles and recommending an operation, Doctor Ted does eventually redeem himself by saving the day when an accident strikes. The children turned their home corner into their own doctor’s surgery, played dress up and role played as doctors with bandages and homemade stethoscopes.
Suzanne Chilvers, Nursery Manager, said: “The children love Doctor Ted as the book is full of wonderful characters and has such an imaginative storyline. As well as running their own surgery they learned about how doctors, and other professions, help us in our day-to-day lives. Thankfully unlike Doctor Ted they didn’t recommend any operations for the ailments they diagnosed!”
